Melville, NY….April 23, 2019…Americans are living longer and retiring later and many of us, at some point in our lives and careers, will become working caregivers for aging loved ones. The “average” U.S. caregiver, according to the AARP, is a 49-year-old woman who works outside the home and spends nearly 20 hours per week—the equivalent of another part-time job—providing unpaid care to her mother. An estimated 61 percent of family caregivers of adults age 50 and older are currently employed either full-time (50 percent) or part-time (11 percent).
Sound familiar? This common caregiver experience is leading many women of all ages to recognize the importance of planning for their own lives. On June 19, 2019, Genser Cona Elder Law partner Melissa Negrin-Wiener will be presenting to a predominantly female audience at the 2019 Collaborate with Edge Leadership Conference at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. The workshop will cover the “3 P’s for Peace of Mind”– Planning for Your Future, Preserving Your Assets and Protecting Your Family, offering specific guidelines to educate and empower women to implement a plan that will help avoid emotional turmoil, family discord and financial disaster. The presentation will also include a Q & A session.
“We help individuals and families engage in empowered elder law and estate planning decision making,” states Negrin-Wiener. “To that end, it’s never too early to plan. It’s important to start thinking about long term care issues around age 55-60. You never know when a crisis might occur and you want to be prepared.”
Other presentation topics at the Collaborate with Edge Leadership Conference include achieving gender balance in the workplace; benefits and responsibilities of not-for-profit board membership; how successful women negotiate; how to build alliances and excel as a leader in a male dominated industry; and achieving financial stability and confidence.
